Being at The Children’s Garden has been one of the best experiences our family has ever had. What and how much our boys have learned, in terms of traditional knowledge, is far beyond our expectations, but is secondary to the way in which they are taught.  The Children’s Garden has given our sons the precious gift of love of learning.  It is a warm, generous, safe, and fun place where the children are treated with kindness and respect. Each child is valued and recognized for their individuality and uniqueness.  Each day they are greeted with a consistency and routine that give them security and a feeling of belonging.  I love that our children have exposure to some of the “basics” of life, whether it is learning a respect for one another or the kindness and responsibility of caring for animals or sewing on a button or the simple virtues of working in the soil.  Many of these lessons have been lost with children in our fast-paced, high-tech world.  I am grateful and feel fortunate my children have had the opportunity to experience many of the things of which I have fond memories from childhood.”

“The Children’s Garden sets the bar high for what a parent can expect in the education of their child.  It lays the groundwork for what is possible and prepares our children to be successful, respectful, responsible students as they move forward in their school careers.” — Kimberly Warner

“The Children’s Garden has not only been a school for our children to attend but an experience our whole family has shared and enjoyed.  We have met and grown close with many families we may never have had the chance to meet otherwise.  We feel part of a warm and welcoming community and part of a family larger than our own.  We have had lots of fun at the various events and get-togethers planned by the school.  All the parents work together to make the school an even better place to be.”

It was a thrill seeing my daughter blossom during her three years at the Children’s Garden.  It was a magical time of learning, making new friends and growing in confidence.  The amazing Montesorri environment was created and led by loving and gentle teachers.  The impact on my daughter will last a lifetime.” –Robbin Reynolds
